Tuesday broken in the garden

We are that which is farthest from God, at the extreme limit where it is still not absolutely impossible to return to him. In our being, God is torn. We are the crucifixion. God's love for us is torment. How could good love evil without suffering? And evil suffers as well in loving good. The mutual love of God and humanity is suffering.

--Simone Weil


  1. Words to live by.... You have me wanting to read some of her books. What is so weird is the picture you posted. I was at the gym and was looking out the window at all the dandelion's that were either half gone or nothing left but the stems. I thought about taking a picture of them. You most of been thinking the same thing. :)

  2. musicwithinyou: Dandelions are really one of my favorite flowers. I don't know why some people are so set on getting rid of them. There's always this moment of melancholy when they start to turn white, and it happens so early. They are like a little bit of fall, here in the heart of spring....
